Suggestion on a build

Recommended Posts

Hello, this is going to be my first build in about 10 years so I have no idea if this is going to work. If you could give me some suggestion it would be great! I'll not be overlocking my cpu, so I went for a fan cooler. I know I'll love the case but other things I'm flexible with changing. This desktop will be running windows 8.1 pro(I know, but I just love how windows 8 works) and Ubuntu 14.04LTS. It'll be used primarily for computing as well as casual gaming(CS:GO). As this thing will be in my bed room I want it to be moderately quiet. Other than that I don't really have any requests.

I think this a great build for the price and also CS:GO doesn't requires a great computer. I am able to play it on max settings at 200+ fps on my y510p.

Sounds like a great build. I don't see any issues with any of those parts. And with specs like that you should have no problems running any games or other software. I recently purchased a fractal design node 605 case and I love it. Fractal design makes some beautiful cases, and also very functional. My case has a felt-like material on the inside of the door that is used to dampen the sound of the fans.
